This is a short term project with specific deliverables. The campaigns have two major components, health and safety. The Health Campaigns seeks to invest on health awareness raising actions with a focus on education and prevention of HIV/ AIDS, malnutrition, malaria, TB, water-borne diseases, STIs and healthy lifestyles. The aim is to contribute to the minimization of the diseases with the intention to reduce the risk to which the community is exposed and to decrease the illness occurrence rates. People in the direct influence area will be educated to visit the community medical Centre as soon as the first illness symptoms are detected. The Health campaign is justified by the high numbers of HIV infection all over the country, as well as the high incidences of malaria and illness transmitted through mosquitoes.
The Safety Campaigns seeks to invest on safety awareness raising actions with a focus on Road and railway Operation Related Safety. The aim is to contribute to the prevention of fatalities, accidents and near misses with the intention to reduce the risk to which people are exposed and to decrease the fatality rates. In addition it will assist institutions on the distribution of IEC materials to prevent accidents such as Road/ Railway safety brochures. The safety campaigns are justified by the need to raise the awareness rising during the operation phase for the risks associated with the traffic of trains and company vehicles that help in the railway related activities.
